Primula Soldanelloides section

The Soldanelloides section contains some of the most desirable Asiatic primulas. The flowers, superficially like those of Soldanella, the European snowbell, are more or less cup shaped, white or cream or ethereal pale blue, with a darker brown or purple hairy calyx, and wonderfully scented. A few of these flowers, quite large, are held on each short stem, above a rosette of hairy leaves. They aren’t easy to grow, but in a cool place, with protection from winter wet, it is not too difficult, and it is certainly worth the effort.
